Lake Erie Beach Stone Bezel Set Necklace

This sort of setting takes a bit more time than the pieces I usually do with drilled stones and jump rings.
I decided to treat a simple dark grey Lake Erie beach stone like it was a special gemstone, because to me, it is just as beautiful.
I created a setting using 20 gauge sterling silver sheet. On the back there's a little surprise: a cut out heart which gives you a peek at the backside of the stone. The pendant is hung on a heavy sterling curb chain.
There's a tiny paddle tag dangling off one of the jump rings on the front. Can you see it? Maybe I'll stamp it with a letter or something. We'll see.
So, what do you think? Should I make more stuff like this?
